Workshop: Of All Things

Workshop: Of All Things
In the March 2008 issue of QN, Laura Fogg told us about her inventiveapproach to making art quilts and theunusual, unexpected, and often weirdmaterials she uses.We wondered howLaura takes care of her artwork–how shepacks the quilts for shipping and howshe stores them at home. Here’s whatshe had to say:

Packing for Travel
When I make a quilt, I plan the placement of bulky embellishments and fragile fabrics. I don’t want these things to be bent when I pack a quilt for shipping. I fold my quilts diagonally, and stuff rolls of tissue paper in the folds to prevent creases. It’s important to make sure the shipping box is big enough to accommodate the quilt and padding without being smashed.

Storage at Home
I store all my quilts hanging on a wall, rolled right side out on a fat tube, or lying flat on the bed in my guest room, out of the sun. My guests sleep on the living room floor.
